[SDCPJ] "Tell the California PUC: Not one more dime for Edison's mistakes!

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) rarely conducts its "Voting Meetings" outside of its HQs in San Francisco. It is holding its next "Voting Meeting" on Thursday, October 25th in the Irvine City Council Chambers, which gives those affected by the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant a tremendous opportunity to address all of the Commissioners. 

Thursday, October 25, Irvine City Council Chambers, 1 Civic Center Plaza, Irvine, CA 92606.  8:30 a.m.!
The meeting starts at 9a, but we are asking supporters of the Keep San Onofre Shut Coalition to arrive by 8:30a, check in by 8:45a to speak during the Pu
blic Comment period at the start of the meeting (if desired), and take seats before the meeting starts. Seating is always at a premium at public meetings on San Onofre, so we want to be sure our Coalition is well-represented in the Council Chambers. 

The CPUC's published Agenda for this meeting includes opening an Investigation into issues raised by the extended outage of San Onofre Nuclear Plant Units 2 and 3. The CPUC regulates the rates and reliability of electric service by SoCal Edison & SDG&E, majority and minority owners of San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant. 

Please attend to show support for a CPUC investigation into the financial aspects concerning the future of San Onofre, for ratepayer protection from unwarranted expenses and a clear choice about investing in truly clean, safe and sustainable alternatives. 

THE RATEPAYERS HAVE HAD ENOUGH. WE DON'T WANT TO WASTE ANOTHER PENNY ON EDISON'S MISTAKES. 

We will have more information in the coming days on our Coalition's "Core Message" for this meeting, as well as other topics. In the meantime, the following is background information on the CPUC and its rules/processes for Public Participation.

NOTE: "At the beginning of each meeting, people may address the Commission about items on the agenda, except closed session matters and certain complaint and license cases. People who wish to speak should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the meeting to sign up at the Public Advisor's table located at the room entrance. Parties may not comment at Commission meetings on items with which they have been involved, because they have already had an opportunity to express their views."
